I welcome applications by interested students to join the lab.
We perform experiments on human associative learning, develop software to run such experiments, develop theory of associative learning, perform meta-analyses of behavioral data, and much more (see Research). From the administrative point of view, there are a few possible positions in which you may enroll. The two most common are:
- As a student enrolled in PSYCH 2001 – Laboratory Experience
- As a student enrolled in PSYCH 5001-5004 – Independent Research
In these cases, you are taking a special kind of course designed to expose students to active research. Being courses, PSYC 2001 and PSYC 5001 have the same registration deadline as all courses, usually about a week into the semester for a late add. Past the deadline, you will not be able to enroll. Both PSYC 2001 and PSYC 5001 are worth three credits and count toward your usual credit cap. You are highly encouraged to contact me during the semester before the one you want to take the course in, otherwise I might not have a spot.
If PSYC 2001 and PSYC 5001 do not fit the bill, you can work in my lab in one of the following capacities:
- As a student enrolled in the Brooklyn College Neuroscience REU (see link for how to apply).
- As a CUNY PhD student in a lab rotation
- As a full-time CUNY PhD student
- As a Brooklyn College Honors Academy student working on a senior thesis
- As a volunteer, if none of the above fits
You can email me at email@example.com to inquire about available positions in the lab. Independent of your formal position in the lab, you will be actively engaged in one or more research projects. You will also be expected to attend lab meetings and to perform assigned tasks timely and responsibly.
